Quiz on section 2 of ICB: Persons Unknown
Intro to Literary Journalism Writing Assignment: In Cold Blood writing exercise
You will be going to a chosen location in the school and if you decide to do an outside location be aware of the weather.
Possible locations [ones that have yielded great results in the past]: front office, media center, specific classrooms [with prior permission from teachers], weight room, locker rooms, stadium, orchestra/band/chorus, art room, etc….
I will give you a pass with the understanding that you are to be on your best behavior and absolutely not breaking any school rules. I will have eyes on you.
Look again at how Capote sets the scene in the opening of In Cold Blood: Chapter 1 Rhetorical Blank Passage
Some videos to assist your understanding:
Literary Journalism Observations: Come to 301 and drop off your bags. You only need a writing utensil and paper.
You will be assigned a locale if you do not have a good one in mind.
Grab a pass, write your location, and have me sign it. Again, BEST BEHAVIOR expected. Do not disturb any class or school operation.
Written/printed writing is due Wed, 2/14.
Vocab for section 3, “The Answer”, due tonight 11:59pm.

Be prepared to present on either day, Thursday or Friday, for your school presentation. The written/printed version work is due when you present.
I will most likely be out tomorrow since I’ve caught whatever bug this is. Waiting on word that my job got picked up. If I am out this plan is this:
-Thursday: tables in media center, with laptops. Work on Written School Proposals OR your In Cold Blood writing assignment
-Presentations Monday, all written proposals due Monday.
School presentations. Turn in written versions. If any time left over, read In Cold Blood.
